All registered pharmacists in Australia do continuing professional development (CPD).

Doing CPD activities helps a pharmacist to:

  • maintain and improve their knowledge, skills and competence
  • achieve annual registration with the Pharmacy Board of Australia (PharmBA)

PharmBA asks us to accredit organisations that accredit CPD activities for pharmacists.

CPD accrediting organisations then accredit those CPD activities. They use the APC Accreditation Standards for Continuing Professional Development Activities

Accredited CPD accrediting organisations as at 20 August 2020
